Book a Fort Lauderdale vacation rental in the downtown Riverwalk District and wake up to this lush oasis in the heart of the city.

Things to do near Fort Lauderdale vacation homes

Promising 23 miles of buttery sands fringed with swaying palm trees, the beaches of Fort Lauderdale rival many along this coast. Come and paddle in the Atlantic Ocean, spot dolphins on a sea life safari cruise, or pull in a marlin from one of the many fishing piers. And as the sun goes down, the beachfront wakes up. Kick back with a sundowner and a shrimp cocktail in the array of seafood restaurants and buzzy beach bars which dot Fort Lauderdale Beach Boulevard.


Local weather for your stay in Fort Lauderdale vacation rentals

Florida's sunshine record is frankly unbeatable. And Fort Lauderdale has it in spades. While it sees plenty of the hot stuff throughout the year, the best time to visit is between December and April, when temperatures are a comfortable 80 degrees. It's also the busiest time, and Fort Lauderdale vacation rentals get booked up quickly. The summer months are very hot and very humid, and susceptible to heavy rain showers and hurricanes, so pack a strong umbrella, as well as your sunscreen.
